RickyMeII045Down Home Guitars was established in 2008 by Steve Haberichter and Tom Smith to provide an atmosphere for those who appreciate fine acoustic instruments. We specialize in high-end handmade acoustic guitars, banjos and mandolins by Bourgeois, Collings, Deering, Huber, Huss & Dalton, Lowden, Martin, Nechville, Ratliff, Santa Cruz, Stelling, Vesper and Weber. See what’s new in the shop on our New Arrivals page or check our our collection of Used Instruments as well.

While most music stores sell everything from drum sets to electric pianos, our customers will find our product selection and knowledge truly exceptional by keeping our focus narrow. We offer private lessons and group classes on various instruments in our Down Home Music School on the 2nd floor. Even though our passion is in the small shop hand-crafted instruments, we do offer a selection of student model beginner and mid level instruments for sale and lesson material.
